Course Description

In this program, students will learn how native threatened species depend on us for survival. The habitat requirements of a number native of species are determined along with their threats. Students will connect with threatened wildlife through animal interaction, develop an understanding of the threats species face and upon return to their class turn their new knowledge into action. Through activities and encounters, students learn about various threatening processes including habitat loss, disease, climate change and pollution, and identify solutions to the imminent danger many species face.
